Owning property in Greece is simple and straightforward. Anybody, regardless of nationality, can be a property owner. Property in Greece is under the protection of the State (Greek Constitution: Article 17, paragraph 1); all property owners in the country have equal rights and responsibilities.
All properties in Greece are freehold. A nationwide Land Registry is underway; some islands already have land registries, while properties in the other areas are registered in the Registry of Mortgages.
Buildings in Greece are designed and constructed in accordance with European Regulations and Standards, and they are in total compliance with stringent regulations for earthquake protection. Apartment buildings in urban areas do not exceed five stories, while in smaller towns and rural areas the buildings are much smaller, with single or two-story detached and semi-detached houses being the norm.
There is a wide range of properties for sale in Greece. High-quality, off-plan construction projects are readily available alongside detached stone houses in the traditional Greek style or modern semi-detached villas and townhouses. In addition, compared to the property prices in Northern and Western Europe, Greek property still represents an excellent value.
The most important part of the buying process is finding a property that feels like home. Once you have found your new home and secured financing, completion of the process should not require more than 6-8 weeks. At Ellasrealty.gr - ελλασρεαλτυ.gr , we stand by you every step of the way.
